WHEELERSBURG — Runners will be heading for the hills for the Run For The Hills 5k Trail Run and one Mile Walk. The event will be held Saturday, Nov. 23, at Scioto Hills Christian Camp and Retreat Center in Wheelersburg.
Runners will experience a trail run that is moderately difficult, while experiencing nature and the view of the hills of southern Ohio. Registration is set to begin at 8:45 a.m., the race is at 10 a.m.
Scott Bruns, director of Scioto Hills Christian Camp said Run For The Hills benefits the youth campers.
“The proceeds from the run go towards scholarships for kids to be able to come to camp. It keeps their cost down. This is the ultimate reason for having this event,” Bruns said.
While some may choose to run in the 5k trail, Bruns said an easier one-mile route will be available for walkers, and for the use of strollers.
Gatorade and water will be provided during the race, with re-hydration and snacks after completion. Following the race, awards will be distributed, and a meal will be provided for participants.
Housing is available for out of town race participants in the form of private and dorm style rooms.
Participants may enjoy a meal consisting of chili, cornbread, brownie, and beverages including sweat tea, water, coffee, and cider.
